Fathom Events CEO John Rubey said, “We are thrilled to partner with BY Experience and Women of Faith to bring this conference event to the big screen to reach women, families and communities all across the U.S. with a message of hope and encouragement.”
“Since the beginning, the heart of Women of Faith has been to share real-life stories filled with humor in the midst of the heartache we all experience at times,” says Amy Chandy, who leads Programming for Women of Faith, where she has served for 17 years. “The transparency and authenticity of the women on our stage offers hope that has changed lives across North America and around the world. We’re so excited to share this journey with a new audience through this movie experience.”
“For 20 years, Women of Faith has provided inspiration to audiences reaching millions of women across North America via their tours and special events,” said Julie Borchard-Young, Co-President of BY Experience. “And now with the cinema broadcast, audiences beyond the tour cities will have the chance to get together with their friends and groups right in their communities to experience the message of Women of Faith together.”
